Syria: Russian aid distributed at Jibreen refugee camp as ceasefire begins

Syrian Arab Republic, Jibreen
December 30, 2016 at 09:43 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Russian Centre for Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria delivered humanitarian aid as well as presents to children at a refugee camp in the village of Jibreen, Friday, after a ceasefire deal came into effect at midnight.

Military personnel distributed hot meals, bread and tea to refugees who had gathered near a field kitchen. Afterwards the children received presents and sweets which were sent by Russian citizens, some of them coming from children of Orenburg. The humanitarian operation was monitored by a battalion of military police of the Russian Ministry of Defence, which arrived in Syria a week ago.

The ceasefire came into effect at midnight local time (22:00 GMT, Thursday) on December 30, after President Bashar al-Assad’s government and militant fighters agreed to a deal brokered by Turkey and Russia. This agreement is said to exclude the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, (formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra) and affiliated groups.
